Here the many sides to addiction are explored in stories which, though often raw and at times heart-breaking, are bound together by their courage, honesty, hope and resolve. Each one recognises the power of openness in emerging from the dark shadow cast by addiction. In looking to a brighter day, they assert the loudly and clearly that, even when we feel at our most isolated, we are never alone. Help is at hand.
With contributions from well-known public figures who have struggled with addiction, including Paul McGrath, Ben Dunne, singer Mary Coughlan and Oisin McConville, the accounts are interspersed with the thoughtful reflections of addiction therapist Frances Black on many themes of recovery.
You Are Not Alone is a book that will give hope and practical advice to the hundreds of thousands of Irish people out there whose lives have been affected by addiction.
